Our Mountain-Top offers stunning views of the Adirondack and Vermont mountains and the Hudson River Valley region. A scenic lift ride is the perfect way to see the beautiful region in a whisk. Once you arrive at the top of the mountain, we suggest hiking on our designated mixed-use scenic and Green (Easy) “Crow’s Nest” trail and down the mountain to the Main Lodge on our mixed-use (Easy) “Slideshow” trail to take it all in (Please CLICK HERE for our TRAIL MAP). Please wear appropriate athletic footwear. It’s fun and fitness for the whole family, a group of friends, or romantic outing! We also offer Burgers, Beverages and more on our patio.
